The left hates liberty but they love guns

The Left isn’t anti-gun. Recent articles show they want to be armed while the Pro-liberty right is disarmed.

Sometimes one can see the advantage and sheer entertainment value of the President tweeting something to set off the Authoritarian Socialist Left on some new issue or direction. Were it not such a serious topic, the reaction of the Left to Gun Pride Month would be hilarious. Several cases had them contradict themselves in one publication, with the usual demands for gun confiscation in one instance, while they called for the arming of the Left in another.

The Left is clearly opposed to the cause of Liberty. This is why it’s a mistake to label them as ‘anti-gun’. They love guns, they just don’t want them in the wrong hands.

Setting off the Left with Gun Pride Month

When we started Gun Pride month last year it was in response to the steady drum beat towards gun confiscation arising on the federal, state and local levels. In the beginning, GPM was a small celebration of Liberty. It is now growing by leaps and bounds. The intent was to show that the more than 120 Million gun owners in the country were not going to be collectively punished for the crimes of a few. Nor were we going to give up our common sense human rights knowing the sequence from history has always been Registration, Confiscation, Annihilation.

The point was to use a certain phraseology that shows that Pro-Liberty patriots had become the first – but not the last – targets of the ire of the Liberty Grabber Left. The poetic statement of Martin Niemöller “First they came for the…” is that the Left tends to isolate and oppress certain groups in turn until no one remained to resist their socialist tyranny.

However, something rather interesting took place with the event beginning this year. Several Far-Left publications just happened to run several articles on the subject of guns at the beginning of Gun Pride Month. The subsidiary of NBC that targeted the Liberty of Steven Crowder ran not one, but two articles on the subject. Even more astounding is that these two stories contradicted each other.

Vox calls for gun confiscation while calling for Leftists to arm themselves

As we stated, it’s quite often entertaining when Leftists trip all over themselves in trying to foster their ever contradictory jihad against Liberty. In the first instance, German Lopez fired up the Vox explain-o-mobile, declaring that: Democrats have been discussing the same ideas on guns for 25 years. It’s time to change thatThere should be a Medicare-for-all or Green New Deal for ending gun violence. Not wanting to be shy when it comes to the destruction of a basic human right, Mr. Lopez declared:

To change the status quo, Democrats should go big. They need to focus on the abundance of guns in the US and develop a suite of policies that directly tackle that issue, from licensing to confiscation to more aggressive bans of certain kinds of firearms (including, perhaps, all semiautomatic weapons or at least some types of handguns).

[Emphasis added]

This was followed up with a rather long and convoluted piece demanding that Left’s suite of candidates for president neglect any concerns for Liberty and push for every kind of draconian measure they can think of against freedom. Primarily because the previous restrictions that were supposed to solve the problem didn’t work as advertised. Never mind that these would run contrary to our nation’s founding documents.

The Left has a fever, and the only prescription is more gun confiscation

The Liberty Grabber Left scrupulously avoids using the ‘C’ word, often dancing a jig on the line over which they openly demand gun confiscation. Never mind that every other Liberty destroying proposal on their part eviscerates the 2nd amendment, much less infringes on a Constitutionally enumerated civil and human right.

No doubt they’ve worn out their copy of Roget’s Thesaurus trying to come up with euphemisms for the word. Everything from banning guns to the ridiculous assertion that they can ‘buy back’ what they have never owned, making an offer we cannot refuse, suffering nuclear annihilation for non-compliance.

The Left doesn’t need a serious crisis to come out against Liberty

It is very important to remember that the Left doesn’t need a serious crisis to make more demands for gun confiscation. They will bring up the subject unconnected with an event that supposedly shows the need for these actions. The invocation of Gun Pride Month being a prime example, there was no tragedy present and yet they felt the need to reiterate their demands for more restrictions on Liberty.

This isn’t about ‘fear’ or ‘protecting the children’ but the overwhelming desire on the part of the Authoritarian Socialist Left to attain political power over the Pro-Liberty Right.

These are people who only pretend to be supportive of individual Liberty. In reality they cannot abide individuals defending that freedom. They never mention this aspect of the 2nd amendment, but something that ‘starts a conversation’ without a serious crisis in the mix lays bare their true intent.

Confiscation contradictions

Oddly enough, the first days of Gun Pride Month saw the moral and intellectual betters of Vox and the New Republic foster the notion that the Left should ‘reclaim guns’ from the Right. The Vox piece contradicted the screed from Mr. Lopez, and had the bonus issue of an ideological contradiction right in the title: I’m a left-wing anarchist. It’s time to reclaim guns from the right.

Of course the phrase ‘Left-wing anarchist’ is a contradiction in terms dictionary definitions of those words, akin to referring to an object being composed of matter and anti-matter, but we digress. Even worse was the use of the phrase ‘reclaim guns from the right’ which could have two meanings, a rhetorical reclaiming or a hidden meaning that the Left should take all the guns from the right and ‘reclaim’ them as their own.

There is a prevailing narrative that pegs guns and armed self-defense exclusively to Republicans, racist libertarians, and other generally Constitution-obsessed weirdos. It maintains that those on the left want to take away everyone’s guns and swathe the entire country in bubble wrap.

This piece was followed up by one in the New Republic also calling for a contradiction against the confiscation narrative: Antifa Is Arming Itself Against a Trump Crackdown.  That screed almost makes the Vox piece look rational by comparison, complete with incomprehensible Leftist ranting to nonsensical word salad labeling. Both of these pieces had two implications, with one being rather sinister in intent. They both negate the whole point of the Left’s supposed concerns about guns while raising the possibility that they only want the Left to be armed.

Negating the gun confiscation agenda

To hear the left talk about it, guns have to be confiscated because that is the only way we can all be safe. One of the signs at the Marx of Our Lives event stated that ‘If nobody had a gun, nobody would need a gun!’. Never mind that would be an impossibility, the idea from the Liberty Grabbers is that we must take every one of the 400 – 600 million guns from more than 120 million innocent gun owners so that these somehow cannot be used to hurt anyone. Forget about the fact that left to their own devices, these millions of guns would just sit around and rust. To the Left, their mere existence is enough of a threat to warrant immediate and full confiscation.

These two articles along with many others admonishing the Left to arm themselves signifies that they don’t really consider all of those guns to be a threat. It also negates the Left’s gun confiscation agenda because those pieces admit that guns change the social dynamic from one of force to one of reason as pointed out in the classic essay: why the gun is civilization.

“Our principle is that the Party commands the gun, and the gun must never be allowed to command the Party.” – Mao Zedong

Conclusion

Consider the words of Mao Zedong and other Leftists in that they love to have guns in their hands, but not in those that would ‘resist’ their oppression. That is the main implication of those articles imploring the Left to grab guns, aside from the fact that it destroys the whole rationale for their gun confiscation agenda. It does however shed new light on many of the licensing schemes and push for Gun Confiscation SWATing legislation. These measures place control of the use of force in the hands of the national Socialist-Left.

This isn’t about ‘gun safety’ or fear of ‘military style’ weapons. This is about disempowering their opposition, wanting their side to have a monopoly on the use of force. That is the point of those screeds encouraging Leftists to grab for the guns. They hate the Liberty that those weapons represent in someone else’s hands.

Conservatives are a hard ‘NO’ on gun control

Conservatives are a hard NO on gun control

This week, the GOP and President Trump intend to put out a plan to slow gun violence in general and mass shootings in particular. Some are assuming this means adopting the Democrats’ universal background checks, progressive red flag gun laws, or both. To the President and representatives of the GOP, we of the conservative right are a hard “NO” on any such restrictions to the 2nd Amendment.

Let’s look at the three major pushes underway right now…

Universal background checks are a not just a slippery slope. They’re a Slip ‘n Slide sprayed down with WD-40 that lead us down a path. That path includes stops at purchasing restrictions and a national gun registry that leads to the bottom of the hill where full-blown gun confiscations take effect. This is why the left has been pushing so hard for them despite the fact that none of the mass shootings they claim they’re trying to prevent would actually have been affected if UBCs were in place. It’s a con job, plain and simple.

Red flag gun laws have some populist appeal because they seem to address the problem of mental illness. The problem is that it does so with a complete disregard for due process. Victims of red flag gun laws are guilty until they can prove themselves innocent. Moreover, there are already laws in place that allow concerned citizens, medical professionals, and law enforcement officers to utilize due process to legally restrict firearms for those who can be proven to be dangers to themselves or others. With those laws on the books, red flag gun laws are a lazy redundancy.

Assault weapons bans… there really should be no reason to describe why this is a horrible idea to those who will read this. But just in case, we know the 2nd Amendment was designed to keep government from disarming the people in a way that would prevent them from fighting back against an oppressive regime, foreign or domestic. The scary “weapons of war” the left wants to ban are only unreasonable to protect to those who don’t know the facts or understand what firearms like the AR-15 really do. Are they used for murder by a handful of mentally ill criminals? Yes. But they are NOT used for murder by the tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of owners who are law-abiding citizens.

Some Republican lawmakers seem to think they’ll appease the left and center by betraying their oath to protect the Constitution, including the 2nd Amendment. This is not true. They will never thank the GOP for gun control. It will always be Democrats who get credit for pressuring Republicans to reluctantly act. Any form of gun control enacted by this Congress and signed by this administration will be a betrayal to the conservative American patriots who look to the GOP to do what’s right for the Constitution and the American people. Instead of reacting to flawed polls asking questions of the ignorant, they need to spend more time educating the people that gun control doesn’t work and is unconstituional to boot.

If the GOP turns its back on the conservative base, they may not lose all of our votes. We’re pragmatic in knowing we won’t be voting for Elizabeth Warren or Joe Biden. But our enthusiasm for the party will drop dramatically. Our financial support will dry up. Our passionate defense of Republican doctrine will be replaced by lukewarm support of the lesser of two evils. We expect the GOP to defend the 2nd Amendment. Otherwise, we get disillusioned by the feckless pandering to a left-leaning group of Americans who are going to vote Democrat in 2020 anyway.

Patriots, we need your help. Spread the word. We need the President and Republican lawmakers to know where we stand. If you agree with this assessment, retweet the following Tweet, like and share the following Facebook post, and share this post with all of your acquaintances through email. We need to get dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of patriots echoing this sentiment to the GOP before they make the mistake that seems to be looming over us all.

Millions of American conservatives voted for President Trump and the GOP because we want them to defend the 2nd Amendment without giving an inch. The enthusiasm behind our support hinges on the GOP saying “NO” to gun control, period.

5 reasons Trump’s conservative detractors need to rethink their stance

5 reasons Trumps conservative detractors need to rethink their stance

President Trump makes mistakes. All presidents do. All humans do. He also has many policies that have done what he said would happen. They’re making America great again. I wasn’t one who bought into the slogan before, but I’ve come around. I’ve seen what has happened over the last three years. More importantly, I have a clear vision of what would happen if he is not reelected.

There are a few things that must be established before I get into the meat and potatoes of this article. The first is understanding the difference between “critics” and “detractors.” Many, perhaps most, who support President Trump do so without question. It doesn’t matter what he says or does. They love it. I am a “critic” of the President’s. When he does well, I praise. When he does poorly, I criticize. I spoke out profusely about the administration’s bump stock ban. I pleaded for months against replacing free trade with fair trade with several articles before acknowledging after the tariffs were in place that if we’re going to have a trade war, we need to go all the way. No half-measures. The fastest path to free trade is by crushing China into economic submission. These and other issues define me as a Trump critic while still allowing me to support him unabashedly.

Detractors are against the President wholly. Those conservatives who have turned from criticism to insult are detractors. And in the nature of detractors, they are taking away from the President’s ability to win. Perhaps a better way of putting it is they are actively increasing the chances of Democratic Socialists taking control in Washington DC. They’ll justify their actions by saying things like, “Trump’s just as bad” or “If he can’t take criticism he shouldn’t be in the White House.” But what they’re really saying is they hate the President so much they’d rather America be transformed piece by piece into a socialist state.

Honest criticism is righteous and necessary to keep the President and the GOP heading in the right direction. Detracting from their abilities to lead and win in 2020 is de facto support for the opposition, which is the Democrats. There is ZERO chance any of the primary challengers now or in the future can do anything other than harm the President’s chances of victory. We can do advanced political calculus all we want and try to goad the President into debating Bill Weld, Joe Walsh, John Kasich, Justin Amash, or whoever else wants to challenge him, but it’s disingenuous to try to disguise this as anything other than an attempt to embarrass the President. Competition internally will not make the Republican Party stronger in this case. We had our chance to put someone else in the Oval Office during the 2016 primaries and we lost. Now, we must be proper defenders of the Constitution against the machinations of he radical progressives trying to take it down.

I was “NeverTrump” for a while, especially during and after the 2016 primaries. I was so against him and most of the GOP that I started a new political party. Over time I learned a few things, which I will detail below.

As a final point before diving into the topic at hand, it should be noted that our efforts to launch the American Conservative Movement hinge on support for President Trump and conservatives within the GOP. If there are opportunities to replace RINOs with Constitutional conservatives, we must seize on them. The protections against detractors given to President Trump within this movement do not apply to RINOs on Capitol Hill or in state offices around the country because we actually can make a difference there. We can support strong Constitutional conservatives to replace RINOs without fear of contradiction to the cause because the source of the movement is adherence to proper policies, not bowing to the party itself. And a movement that would exclude Trump supporters would’t be much of a movement at all.

In short, it behooves conservatives across America to support the President and conservatives in other offices as we push forward towards 2020. Many have grown indignant and disenchanted with the party and/or its leader, but there are five important reasons why these people need to suck it up and focus on doing what’s best for America.

The binary choice

It’s important to start with this one, not because it’s the most pressing reason but because two important points must be made regarding this. I’m not a fan of binary choices, which is why I tried to start a new political party. But until such a time comes when we aren’t forced to pick between Democrats and Republicans, those will be the only two valid cards we’re dealt.

There’s another component of binary choice that must be understood, one I eluded to before. Many of President Trump’s conservative detractors say we can get someone better to run as a Republican for president. They say that this “someone” has a very small chance of defeating President Trump. When they say this, they’re wrong. Any Republican who runs against President Trump has absolutely zero chance of defeating him. Striving for better in the face of futility is not honorable, not when the damage done is beneficial to the opposition.

But it’s bigger than just the Oval Office. Without massive support for President Trump, the down-ballot races will fall like flies hitting a bug zapper. Turnout is everything in presidential elections, and I can say with a high degree of certainty that Democratic turnout in 2020 will break records. If Republican turnout doesn’t do the same, we’re not just going to lose the White House. We’re going to lose the Senate. We’ll lose governors and mayors. The House of Representatives will return to the pre-1994 days when Democrats controlled it for decades.

The economy

Unemployment is at an all-time low, particularly for African- and Hispanic-Americans.

Wages are finally rising after nearly two decades of stagnation and fiscal mismanagement kept wage growth slowed compared to cost of living.

The dollar is strong. Wall Street is flourishing. Prosperity is on the rise.

Whether you attribute these positives to President Obama, Congress, or President Trump, you do so without knowing for sure because nobody can honestly and definitively give proper credit when it comes to the economy. That’s the nature of economics and why there’s still plenty of debate over what works and what does not. But the easiest attribution can be given to the 2018 tax cuts, and both President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress delivered on them.

The last thing we need is a Democratic Congress and president reversing the tax cuts and potentially doing great harm to the economy.

The Supreme Court

When the 2020 election takes place, there will be three Justices in their 60s, two in their 70s, and two in their 80s. The next two presidential terms could realistically expect to control the nominations of 2-4 or more Supreme Court Justice seats.

Imagine if Hillary Clinton won in 2016. Instead of two decent Justices in Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, we would have a very left-leaning Supreme Court that is pro-abortion, anti-gun, and pro-authoritarian rule.

This is the omnipresent argument about the presidency and the Senate. Every presidential election makes this the great equalizer when someone we don’t necessarily like represents our party for the presidency.

The border

Despite unhinged Democrats, activist judges, and feckless GOP leadership during the two years they had total control of Capitol Hill with a Republican in the Oval Office, the administration has still made the most strides to protect the border than any administration in history. Supporters often invoke “best in history” when referring to President Trump’s various policies, but this is one that is actually backed up by demonstrable actions.

The border crisis was inevitable. We should have seen it coming five years ago. We definitely should have seen it coming before the midterm elections. But we didn’t. Now, we’re stuck fighting the migrant surge with both arms tied behind our backs. But the President is doing everything he can to stop it. He listened to bad advice from the aforementioned feckless Republican leaders on Capitol Hill, but we can assume that won’t happen again. And hopefully, if the GOP regains control of both chambers, they learned their lesson as well.

We’ll make sure they do if they haven’t already.

Without the President’s stance on the border issue, we will have open borders. This is as inevitable as the border crisis was. This point alone should be enough to scare detractors into rethinking their stance, but I have one more, just in case…

The existential threat

I am sick of hearing from so-called conservatives that President Trump is no better than the Democrats running for office. It takes a heavy degree of willful ignorance to not recognize the difference between President Trump’s faults and the existential threats knocking on the White House’s door. The best-case scenario for healthcare under a Democratic president and Congress is a public option and massive expansion of Obamacare, which itself will bankrupt this nation. The various iterations of Medicare-for-All would set this country on an unavoidable collision course with Modern Monetary Theory, the destruction of the dollar, and an economic collapse that would make 2008 seem like a minor fractional correction.

Gun control will be enacted, and I’m not talking about universal background checks or red flag gun laws. The gun control the Democrats will enact will essentially suspend the 2nd Amendment.

Then, there’s the abortion issue. If there’s one thing that disturbs me the most about “conservatives” or “Christians” who oppose President Trump and/or the GOP, it’s this issue. We’ve seen what happens when Democrats are in control of states. Abortion isn’t just available. It’s promoted. There are laws passing now that allow babies born after failed abortions to be left to die. Every “conservative” or “Christian” who works to prevent the President and the GOP from winning in 2020 is pro-abortion in their actions even if their rhetoric pretends to say otherwise.

Self-righteous attacks on the President in light of what has been accomplished and more importantly based on what will be lost if the Democrats take control is not an expression of one’s conscience. It’s selfish and will work towards the unraveling of this nation as we know it.

America is heading in the right direction. President Trump is far from perfect. Everybody is. But “conservatives” who work against him in today’s political scenario are working towards the destruction of America through Democratic control.

The left has destroyed their cause by jumping the gun and demanding confiscation, Part II

The left has destroyed their cause by jumping the gun and demanding confiscation Part II

Leftists have dropped all pretence of being reasonable, destroying their socialist national agenda on gun confiscation.

In Part I we began our examination of how the left has damaged their cause of eviscerating everyone’s inalienable human rights. This part will detail some of the implications of their dropping of the authoritarian mask.

Leftists have the absurd idea that gun confiscation will be the natural outcome of a certain level of societal violence. That a death toll factor ‘x’ multiplied over time ‘t’ will equate to an overwhelming demand for gun confiscation ‘c’. Despite the lies propagated by the authoritarian socialist left, we on the pro-liberty right are always deeply saddened by these tragedies. This is why we offer thoughts and prayers to the mockery of our betters on the left.

Were it not for the constraints of civility, we would assert that the liberty grabber leftists revel in the pain and suffering of others to the point of encouraging future attacks. Those on the other side of the political spectrum are supposedly our moral and intellectual superiors, therefore they should be well aware of the psychological phenomena of Media Contagion whereby the breathless wall to wall coverage propagated by them results in additional tragedy. Thus the conclusion that they are merely projecting their delight on their political enemies.

Leftist demands for gun confiscation are coming into a new light.

As one who has studied and researched the deluge in confiscation demands  occasioned by tragedy over the years, it was no surprise when many of the democratic presidential candidates jumped on the gun confiscation bandwagon after recent events. Many others took notice, easily looking past the Orwellian terminology to come to the stark realization that the left has finally dropped the mask of being reasonable. These kinds of demands have been common place for years now, the latest – but somewhat dated – list from last September tells the tale.

In most cases leftist liberty grabbers tend to couch the demands for confiscation in softer terms while casting the subjects, both inanimate object and possessor, in the harshest terms possible. They love to call the outright confiscation of private property a ‘buy-back’ implying collectivized ownership narrative to the whole affair, while the rightful owners of said property will supposedly be ‘compensated’ [with their own money] for this government sanctioned theft.

They, of course, tar those who want to conserve liberty as ‘gun nuts’ or ‘terrorists’. While the love to lay on the hyperbole labeling the modern-day musket a ‘military style assault weapon’ or a ‘weapon of war’. Never mind that ordinary citizens commonly use these to defend themselves.

This is just a small sampling of leftist demands for gun confiscation that have been spewed forth over the years:

Daily Kos: How to Ban Guns: A step by step, long term process

New Republic: It’s Time to Ban Guns. Yes, All of Them

Boston Globe: Hand over your weapons

Esquire: Okay, Now I Actually Do Want To Take Your Guns

This time around prominent ‘democratic’ politicians were making these demands in the national public spotlight:

Medium: Senator Elizabeth Warren: My plan for gun violence prevention.

NOQ Report: Kirsten Gillibrand wants to confiscate guns

Daily Wire: ‘NO COMPROMISE’: Biden Goes Extreme On Guns, Calls For Ban On All Magazines, Rips Texas For Allowing Worshipers To Defend Themselves

Bearing Arms: No One Is Coming For Our Guns? Someone Needs To Tell Beto

The left openly demanding gun confiscation has changed the debate.

This time around, these demands were met with defiance. This time around everyone realized that with the left losing the plot, they had just dropped the mask on being reasonable. The liberty grabber left used to at least portray an outward appearance of being reasonable with talk of ‘common sense gun safety’ or similar folderol.

Discarding all of stepping-stones to their ultimate goal has revealed the gun-grabbing zealots they truly are. Many patriots on the pro-liberty right already knew this to be the case, but now everyone knows that when leftists talk about ‘gun reform’ they really mean gun confiscation, never mind the Orwellian sugar-coating.

Now that we have proven that the nation’s socialist left has truly come out once and for all for gun confiscation, let us consider the full implications of this emergence. Beginning with abject rejection of these authoritarian demands by those on the right imbued with the conservation of liberty..

The almost instantaneous reaction to these game-changing decrees from the left was defiance across the board. This of course is named after the false narrative nickname of the man spearheading the destruction of everyone’s inalienable human rights: Robert Francis O’Rourke.

The ‘Beto’ Backlash.

‘NO to more govt. intrusion’: TX Rep. Matt Schaefer’s thread pushing back on gun-control causes heads to EXPLODE

Texas Lawmaker Delivers Blistering Rebuke To Anti-Gun Democrats, Media

Why ‘Mandatory Buybacks’ Are A Non-Starter

HAMMER: I Will Never, Ever Let The Government ‘Buy Back’ My ‘Assault Weapon’

Talking to the Left About Gun Control Is a Chump’s Game and We Aren’t Playing

The Anti-Gun Left and the Media Can’t be Allowed to Destroy the Second Amendment – The Truth About Guns

An Open Letter To Beto O’Rourke

This open defiance of our betters on the left was met with instant condemnation. After all, how dare we speak out on conserving our inalienable human rights?

The full implications of the ground shifting under the left.

To begin, we should preface this discussion that this should be a cautionary tale for anyone steeped in an echo chamber. Leftists tend to believe their own false narratives, for example a poll that shows most are concerned about ‘mass shootings’ and will agree with whatever is the stepping stone to gun confiscation de jour. As reported in the Daily Wire, this poll was perfectly decimated by gun expert Loesch.

Those misleading polling results are contradicted by the fact that NICS background checks on guns jumped 15 percent in August. As someone postulated on the site The truth about guns Everyone’s Happy to DO SOMETHING After a Shooting, As Long As It’s Done to Someone Else.

Giving up the pretense of being reasonable.

It has always been an essential part of the lefts debating points on guns. Rhetorically speaking, the left would always wield their current restriction of liberty as a sword, while using the ‘no one is talking gun confiscation’ lie as a shield against any counter arguments.

‘Universal’ background checks are clearly meant to set up for gun registration’/licensing, ‘red flag’ gun confiscation SWATing laws and ‘assault weapons’ bans are of course for the outright taking of guns from the people. Leftists would simply use the ‘no one is talking gun confiscation’ lie to deflect any arguments against these measures. Most likely throwing in a little personal attack that anyone pointing this out is ‘paranoid’ at the truth staring them in the face.

This is the one main reason for the left keeping a death grip on that outright lie. They could sound reasonable while casting aspersions on their opponent. Now with the left dropping the mask on gun confiscation, they no longer have that shield, they no longer sound reasonable.

Confiscating guns takes away any benefits they provide.

The fact that guns save more lives than are lost, is one of the left’s major sins of omission. Dropping the pretense of practicality and making demands that guns be taken from the innocent changes the dialog from ‘common sense’ to endangering the innocent as exemplified in this article from The Federalist: entitled: Why Criminals Looking To Victimize Women Love Gun Control.

The left is throwing away the mask of being liberal.

One of the major implications of the left dropping the mask on gun confiscation is that they can no longer claim to be liberal. Those studying the left have known this for some time, but this and their increasing attacks against the 1st Amendment have made it clear that they no longer have any use for liberty. These attacks also reveal that they have no use for the bill of rights or individual freedom.

Maintaining the ‘no one is talking gun confiscation’ lie at least gave them a toehold on being within the bounds of the Constitution. Coming out for confiscation eviscerated any questions of constitutionality for them.

The bottom-line: A repudiation of republican self-rule.

In writing this dissertation, the subject always seems to circle around to why the left still uses the ‘no one is talking gun confiscation’ lie. It seems like every day a politician here or a pundit there proves that saying to be a ridiculous assertion. Most major publications of the national socialist media have come out for gun confiscation [or one of it’s thematic variations]. Most politicians of note from the national socialist left have advocated the destruction of the inalienable human right of self-defense. Thus it is patently absurd for anyone to use the ‘no one is talking gun confiscation’ lie. This begs the question one more time: why is it critical for the left to maintain this lie?

Leftists love to pride themselves as being ‘democratic’ as well as being ‘liberal’ while they are neither. Gun confiscation means that they no longer trust their fellow citizens with firearms, preferring to have the government imbued with a monopoly on the use of force. Instead of the means of self-defense equally distributed amongst the people, they would prefer to have power elite in control of the ordering of society.

Maintaining the ‘no one is talking gun confiscation’ lie, let them hold onto this false pretense while their recent demands blew it away. The right to possess arms distinguishes a citizen from a subject, or a slave. In dropping their authoritarian mask, the left has made it quite clear what they think of their fellow citizens: That they would prefer them to be subjects of their rule instead. They have crossed the line in wanting absolute power. That is why they should NEVER have it.
